Warrior fighting for glory in the Colosseum of Fools. Warily approaches opponents with shield held high.
That 'Colosseum' is a strange place where some bugs fight each other to the death and others watch. I don't understand such obscure rituals. If you venture in, stay on guard at all times.
Behaviour and Tactics
After taking a hit from the shield, or waiting long enough with the Knight in front of them, they will lunge forward followed by a slash. Occasionally they lunge and slash a second time. Their attacks are very telegraphed and can be dodged easily; the second swing is only slightly faster than the first one. Bait them into attacking, then counter-attack while they recover or jump over/dash through them and hit them from behind. When the player jumps above them while they are not attacking, they will use their shield to protect themselves from above.
Using the Dream Nail on the shielded fool is a good way to gain full SOUL, especially when combined with Dream Wielder. This is especially useful in the Trial of the Fool, where it is easy to take lots of damage. This is good for reaching God Tamer with full SOUL and full health. It is recommended to save the Shielded Fool as the last enemy alive to attempt this.

This enemy is only found in the Colosseum of Fools, in all of the three trials.
